Personally i don't think respect has anything to do with anything. I don't have to respect you as a person, that doesn't make me a bad person. Respect is earned not a given. I think what you were trying to say is "people who don't allow their right to be who they want to be" since I believe(but could be wrong) that you are referring to individuals who impede or vilify such life choices. However if your word choice was what you intended.. then you don't really support freedom of speech or freedom to think differently. I believe its important to let people have their freedom of speech even if its from a differing or outright hateful ideology. Anything less and its paving the way for authoritarianism. But that's just my opinion.

No, neutrality implies that the subject is not believed a real issue. It neither aids nor abets oppression. People need to stop LOOKING for ways in which they're being oppressed.

If you have to look, you aren't being oppressed. If you have to look, you have too little to do and too easy a time surviving.

I support freedom of speech if people don't want to respect them that's their right they are dicks (imo) but it's not illegal nor should it be
I meant they deserve the right to live their lives how they wish.

But I meant respect as in respecting their rights to be themselves just like people respect others rights to have freedom of speech.

Also people like Leelah killed themselves because of parental transphobia. Hell I considered that option if coming out went south

I don't understand how someone can not identify as one of the binary genders, but just because I don't personally understand (note: I aso don't understand how anyone can be attracted to men. lol) doesn't mean it's not true. So I don't see any reason why they shouldn't have rights. Society needs to lighten up on the whole gender thing. It's not as simple as so many people want to make it out to be.

As someone who was a non-binary lesbian for me it was kind of this I hate most parts of my body when I before I transitioned but I don't hate every single parts

I wish the arguments, posturing and divisive questioning would just stop and people would just get along. I don't think i'll ever see it in my life time.

in most countries everyone has the right to be who and what they want to be, I don't really care myself. all that I care about is, don't force it down my throat, I don't care and third what you do on your own time (behind closed doors) is your business as is my life. I don't go around forcing my beliefs down your throats, believe and respect mine is all that I ask.

There are many Native American societies that support transexual and non-binary genders before the European invaders forcebly impose homophobia onto the Native Americans so i do not see anything wrong with transexual, intersex, or non-binary genders.

Sadly many societies vary in their degree of tolerance but most still tend to shun or marginalize that which deviates from its percieved cultural and ethical norms. Unfortunately other factors come into play such as religion and homophobia (transphobia, although not always, is often an expression of homophobia) and fear of that which is strange, unusual, or different. That which is not "normal" gets pathologized as "abnormal" and is "sick", indicative of disease. Kind of like leprosy was in the past but in modern times. I don't see a problem with transgender but you have to accept not everyone is going to understand it and you will have to accept that you can't always change their ignorance but look past the naysayers and find support groups - people that will support and accept you for being you.

Name one Native American society that supported transsexuals before the Europeans arrived? I'm legitimately curious.

I do not have enough information for a specific Native American society but I have read that the Spaniard invaders once get horrified of the homosexual accpetance of the Aztec empire and brutally torture the homosexuals.
